In business for over twenty-five years, Vikki Leftwich has a distinct style that she describes as “a minimalist approach to mixing the old with the new.” In a home designed by Vikki Leftwich, clean-lined upholstered pieces juxtaposed with eighteeenth-century antiques look exactly right.
The firm offers full-spectrum services, from working with architects preconstruction to choosing interior colors, fixtures and furnishings.
“It’s good to work with the architect from the beginning because I focus on the interiors and can help edit the plans,” Leftwich explains. “Some clients want us to come in and start from scratch, and others just want us to take care of furniture selection and placement. We do both.”
Leftwich spends quite a bit of time traveling, searching for one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients, and most clients get to enjoy a hands-on shopping experience in her New Orleans furniture store. As a one-stop interior design resource center, Villa Vici carries lighting, mirrors, armoires, occasional tables, antique reproductions and dining, living and bedroom furniture.
Most of her business comes from repeat clients focusing on
second and third homes who return to Leftwich for her well-defined sense of style. Welcome to the world of Villa Vici…
